Fishboy: IMAVOLCANO (Video Premiere)


As I write this, I’m hungry. And I’m watching a brand new video by Fishboy for “IMAVOLCANO” that features pizza. I’m about to head up to Bellingham with my new wife and go to Rudy’s, which has an awesome half-price deal on Wednesdays. We’ll be stocking up with leftovers. For now, I’ll watch this awesome bearded dude dance around at pizza joints with a slice and wish it was me.

I’ve been a fan of Denton, TX band Fishboy for years. Frequent readers might remember that Albatross was among my top 2 or 3 albums of 2009. The band is set to release a limited pressed single and comic book combo called IMAVOLCANO, and it features the same quirky sense of humor the band has crafted for years.

Fishboy: Alyson Revere [Video]


Oh Fishboy, you never fail to amuse. We interviewed Fishboy’s Eric Michener a few months back about his new LP, Classic Creeps, which finally came out this week. Yeah, we’ve been rocking to it since January and can contest to its total awesomeness. Well, in celebration of the release, Michener, aka Fishboy, put together a video for the album’s fifth song, “Alyson Revere”, and it goes a little something like this… Read More »Fishboy: Alyson Revere [Video]

An Interview with Eric Michener of Fishboy


The paths of Erich Michener (the man behind Fishboy) and myself (Andrew Fenstermaker) crossed in October of 2007 at a little dive somewhere on the south end of Manhattan. It was the annual College Music Journal festival and HHBTM was having an event. They crossed again sometime later in Seattle, a visit that, oddly enough, included a troll, fish sticks and Gassworks Park. That is, unless I’m joining two trips together, which is entirely possible; there was that show at Comet Tavern which may or may not have been at the same time. I digress.

Fergus & Geronimo: Where The Walls Are Made Of Grass [Video]


In the first few moments of Fergus & Geronimo‘s “Where The Walls Are Made Of Grass”, we’re treated to a jazzy percussion and a cool, laid back upright bass line. This is the basis for the music Fergus & Geronimo create, blending genres in a most unique way. Rounding out the sound are odd vocal harmonies, folk-pop guitar hooks, and traces of an alto saxophone. Combined, they make up one of the most refreshing sounds we’ve heard in quite a while. Read More »Fergus & Geronimo: Where The Walls Are Made Of Grass [Video]

Doug Burr: O Ye Devastator [Album Review]

Doug Burr

His voice is soft. His soul seems calm. He is Doug Burr, one the latest artists to develop the prominent theory of using naturalism and a far from tyrannical use of expressions to create vibrant yet subtle songs that make you feel….well, they just make you feel. His third release, O Ye Devastator, proves to be a perfect continuation, as well as a reintroduction to this man who sings with such an ease it will leave you planted right where you are with a sensation to do nothing but listen. And listen close. Read More »Doug Burr: O Ye Devastator [Album Review]
